He has to, if this team is to win any games.

How long is it until he replaces the "one goal" to "shutout".

swedish blog - Henrik after the game.

http://blogg.aftonbladet.se/perbjurman

I'll try to translate it but not used to writing english so ignore the mistakes please!

Code:
Till och med Kung Henrik var tvungen att ifrågasätta lagkamraterna efter inledningsperioden.
– Första tjugo var spelet oacceptabelt, muttrar han och slänger en tejpbit hårt i vägen när jag efter viss tvekan vågar mig in i hans hörn.
– Så i första pausen frågade jag om de inte insett vad vi befinner oss i för situation.
Even King Henrik had to question his teammates after the first period.
- first twenty was unacceptual, he mumbles and throw a piece of tape hard in to the wall. (when I dear to go over to his corner - the blogger)
- So during the first intermission I had to ask if they did not realize what kind of situaton we are in.

I can just pictures this:
Code:
Den här Chad Johnson, ska dom verkligen slänga in honom?
Han ser inte äldre ut än en Jonas Brother där han sitter intill en fuming Lundqvist och försöker ta av sig skydden så tyst och obemärkt som möjligt
This Chad J, are the really going to throw him in?
He looks as old as a Jonas Brother, sitting next to the fuming Lungdvist and trying to take of his aquitment as quiet and unoticable as possible.

That is just frustration building up after the team plays hard for consecutive games without any results to show for it. That's not the team saying, screw this guy I'm not playing for him.

they played hard. fair to say they didn't play well - though i think they played pretty well in general, just can't finish. but this comment is silly. in my opinion.

The players are playing at their talent levels.

How sad is that?

I agree... It seems the Rangers are sending in one guy deep and the other forwards are staying back... This to me is a trapping system.. The Rangers in the beginning of the year were sending in the forwards with an attacking style.... I think Torts realized the attacking system is not working which exposed the weaknesses of certain players so he scaled it back now which more resembles a trapping team.... Nothing wrong with this as the defense and goaltending is playing better since Torts changed the system.. Now...they have to figure how to score some goals!!

Wonder if the meeting was like the one a while back, where Torts went around the room and openly talked about each player individually, whether it was positive or negative.
Yes I heard what he said to Gilroy in the locker room in front of everyone after the Chicago game not very nice. Gilroy was the least of his problems but they can use the kid as a scapegoat as they aren't doing anything with Redden, Rozy and Drury 3 guys who are a much bigger than Gilroy.

As for the hotel I would say they are at the Garden City hotel.
